Functional Organization of Neurons and Dendrites
This chapter details early studies on the neuron doctrine. The neuron doctrine arose as an organizing principle for the nervous system in the late 19th century. The advances in the 1950s provided the first adequate tests of its validity, bringing about a revolution in the functional concept of the neuron. Much of this revolution concerns the functional significance of the short processes, the dendrites, at the next higher level of organization of the neuron above the synapse.
